Taxus x media 'Densiformis'

Overall Description

A very densely growing shrub form of Yew - many times twice as wide as it is tall. Nice deep green needles, with new growth emerging as a brighter green and eventually maturing to deep green. Excellent choice for use as formal hedge, takes very well to pruning/trimming. Will do well in full sun, but will really perform well if given just a bit of shade as a break from high summer heat. Likes well drained soil that is somewhat moist and slightly on the acidic side. Moderate growth rate.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
